March Game 1 - Quapaw Baths

March Game 1 - Quapaw Baths

I'm not sure I'm truly finished with this one, but here it is. As this is going to be part of a larger album, I didn't mention that it's in Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas. 2 photos, 3 papers, stitching, journaling block and journaling, 6 fasteners, 3 embellishments, two-word title, date, shadows, styles added.

The Quapaw Bathhouse is a Spanish Colonial Revival style building built in 1922
of masonry and reinforced concrete finished with stucco. The most impressive
exterior feature is the large central dome covered with brilliantly colored mosaic
tiles and capped with a small copper cupola. Directly above the entrance is a
cartouche with a carved Indian head set into the decorative double-curved parapet.
The Indian motif, found throughout the building, was used to reinforce
a legend,which claimed that the Indians had discovered
the magical healing powers of the spring and cave
now housed in the building’s basement. From www.QuapawBaths.com.
It ‘s still in use as a spa, with four soaking pools of thermal mineral water.

    This is lovely! Your photos are so pretty and I like how you tacked them to your beautiful background. I also really enjoyed your journaling and learned some, too! :)
    Wow, this is great. It's not crowed but is very interesting. Love it.
    Pretty layout, Smokey. I've camped near there. It's so pretty up there.
    Beautifully done. The stitched borders, feather and diamond embellishments are perfect for this LO. I am very impressed with your background with the stone Indian head - well done.
